Woodland Studies

2017 - 2019

I am regularly inspired by my surroundings and the countryside where I live. I spend a lot of time walking in the woodland and these studies have come from sketches and photographs I have taken, documenting the walks I have done and the different species I have found. Some are a combination of different walks throughout the year whilst others are species I have documented in a single trip.
